I having problems with this formula.  It does not enter correctly in C3.  I either does not copy down to the next row correctly or it adds B2 reference not B3.  

Sheet1.Range("C3:C" & Lastrow).FormulaR1C1 = "=(VLOOKUP(B3,'Vendor'!$E$2:G9,2,FALSE))"
_____________________________________________________________

Sub InsertVS()
    Dim Lastrow As Long

    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
   

    Sheet27.Range("C:D").EntireColumn.Insert
     
    Lastrow = Sheet27.Cells(Sheet27.Rows.Count, "B").End(xlUp).Row
 Sheet27.Range("C3").Select
    Sheet27.Range("C3:C" & Lastrow).FormulaR1C1 = "=(VLOOKUP(B3,'Vendor'!$E$2:G497,2,FALSE))"
     
    Sheet27.Range("D3:D" & Lastrow).FormulaR1C1 = "=VLOOKUP(B3,'Vendor'!$E$2:H497,3,FALSE)"
 
 
 Sheet27.Columns("C:D").Select
        Selection.Replace What:="=", Replacement:="=", LookAt:=xlPart, _
        SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False, _
        ReplaceFormat:=False
       
   
       
    Application.ScreenUpdating = True
   
 
 
End Sub

Sheet1.Range("C3:C" & Lastrow).Formula = "=(VLOOKUP(B3,Vendor!$E$2:$G$9,2,FALSE))"
   
    Sheet1.Range("D3:D" & Lastrow).Formula = "=VLOOKUP(B3,Vendor!$E$2:$H$9,3,FALSE)"
 

(Remove "R1C1" and put $ on your entire lookup range. Not sure which one did it, prolly R1C1)

Ok - I changed, but put B3 in C3 and C4.  Need for it to copy down B3, B4 B5 etc.

In your script you are effectively telling the formula to be string of text which Excel then recognises as a formula. If you rewrite the formula to R1C1 notation, even as a string of text excel will then evaluate correctly.

Formula for C3 would be:

=VLOOKUP(RC[-1],Vendor!R2C5:R9C7,2,FALSE)

Formula for D3 would be:

=VLOOKUP(RC[-2],Vendor!R2C5:R9C7,3,FALSE)

So scripts would be:

Sheet1.Range("C3:C" & Lastrow).Formula ="=VLOOKUP(RC[-1],Vendor!R2C5:R9C7,2,FALSE)"
Sheet1.Range("D3:D" & Lastrow).Formula ="=VLOOKUP(RC[-2],Vendor!R2C5:R9C7,3,FALSE)"
